Lovely! At the moment, I think I like the ant best, but I may prefer the bee tomorrow. Both are gorgeous. Are you going to continue through the alphabet? That would be quite the challenge!

Like the bee photo. Like you said, the bokeh is great.

Thanks for the compliments, all. Appreciate it a lot.
Been feeling a little low lately and so I went out to shoot to sort of clear the head, so I'm happy I got these. The bee shot was the more challenging of the two as I had to manually focus the brisk bee as it was moving about the tiny flowers while a hint of a breeze was blowing. Plus I had to entertain a few tourists who were curious at what I was doing.

Hmm, going thru the alphabet as a theme is a good idea... thanks foxglove

Glad you like it - I may do it myself, I need something to focus my efforts.

Excellent shots! The second is so perfect, I almost wish there was some distraction to give it more tension...
